What are some good USB sound cards?

Advise, please, the USB sound card to listen to Lossless, and voice recording.
And a question. Sorry, if stupid. Is it possible to an external sound card to connect a USB microphone or last has its own sound card? Microphone Blue Yeti USB.
In General, we need a sound card that works together with the microphone for a quality recording.

PS sound card only for headphones, no 5.1 or 7.1

Is it possible to an external sound card to connect a USB microphone

no
Well, more precisely how. It is possible, if the soundcard will be USB. But processing of the sound of this microphone will go NOT through the soundcard - in microphones built-in ADC. - Deborah33 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:44
@Deborah33when I was carried away ~5 years ago, I have these cards not seen)) - katarina commented on March 12th 20 at 08:47
@katarina, Novation Audiohub, M-Audio M-Track Hub - this is purely a quick search ) - Deborah33 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:50
"External sound card with USB input" = "external sound card with built in USB hub". - kayley50 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:53
@Deborah33, Yes, then it is possible) - katarina commented on March 12th 20 at 08:56
@kayley50, and that it is better to record audio - USB-microphone or a separate microphone connected to the sound card? - Ignatius99 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:59
@Ignatius99, when your budget appears to be no difference. - kayley50 commented on March 12th 20 at 09:02
@kayley50, something tells me that the second is better, but Yes, expensive. Thank you - Ignatius99 commented on March 12th 20 at 09:05

What is the budget? And what microphone are you going to write the voice (TRS, XLR, phantom power 48V)?

Because you can start with the Behringer U-PHORIA UM2 to continue Personal MiNiSTUDIO Tascam US-32, and to finish the Steinberg UR28M. In all of this are features that you don't need. But decent (better than prosumer) interfaces only with the "Amateur" set of functions just don't.

A USB microphone is a microphone with your audio interface, external USB interface to insert is not necessary.
Budget up to$ 200. The Blue Yeti USB microphone, other microphone will not.

That's not caught up:
A USB microphone is a microphone with your audio interface, external USB interface to insert is not necessary.

@Ignatius99sound card in a USB microphone already built-in. Why even ask the question if you already decided? - kayley50 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:49
@kayley50, I'm just saying that the MIC was determined and it is necessary to choose accordingly. In General, the microphone I like, both externally and on the connection method. I just want it all better, hence the question ) - Ignatius99 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:52
@Ignatius99, it is fundamentally wrong to ask which is better when you have already decided everything. In the end, buying a MIC and external sound card only for headphones/monitors, you
a) overpay, because, in fact, buy two interfaces (separate and built-in microphone), with a separate entrance for you to use will not,
b) complicate the management of this zoo (two drivers, two control panels).
So what you have decided, significantly contrary to your objective, at least - in the matter of the budget. - kayley50 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:55
@kayley50, maybe there are sound cards that focus on listening, without the MIC output? I really don't know. Why do you think I created the topic. - Ignatius99 commented on March 12th 20 at 08:58
